My husband and I were just having this discussion (he's Swedish and I'm American) and we came up with 2 more. He was constantly saying things like "That was very coward.". I finally brought it up to him tonight that I thought that was wrong. He assumed that it was right because it followed the rules of grammar and that the -ly is only given to adverbs. So, here they are:

cowardly
dastardly
